Rising above the Lauterbrunnen Valley, this Swiss alpine lodge is perhaps the most tranquil at the resort. From the balconies of the hotel, panoramic vistas open onto alpine scenery dominated by the Jungfrau along with the Monch and Eiger. Many guests start their day on one of these balconies, taking in the bracing alpine air. Bedrooms are attractively furnished with style and taste, and each one is spacious with large picture windows framing that view. The most luxurious of the units here can be quite expensive, especially in the peak winter season. On site is a gourmet French restaurant, with both a daily set menu and an a la carte. The chef usually offers a five-course "surprise menu" as well. The hotel is also a great stopping off point for après-ski drinks and snacks.
